My love for Kiehls is endless. I’ve found out about the brand a good year and a half ago, bought my first products last year in October and I’ve loved them every since. If you follow me on Instagram, if not: click here, you must have seen my instastories on the Kiehl’s X Nature event. In this post I’ll show you some insights from the event and I’ll tell you more about their newest products.
Kiehl’s X Nature
Honestly, I had to rush so hard to make it to the event hahaha. I had to work an early shift so I did my makeup and hair at 3:15 am in the morning. A quick touch up before I entered and done!
The event took place at the Red Fish Factory in Borgerhout. Since I really don’t know a thing in or Around Antwerp I lost my way once or twice … damn you orientation! I was both nervous and excited that day. It was my first ever invite from PR agency The Wicked so thank you for this! I had to attend the event alone because I couldn’t bring a plus one. No biggy, got to know lot’s of new people there!
Let’s talk about the setting first:
OMG LOVED IT! Flowers, greens, healthy foods such as lavender cookies (= LIFE), hot ginger mint tea and much more. With a Polaroid camera they came an took pictures of us, love these kind of memories.
Did I mention I met some very cool chicks?

And I made this cool flower power video?
Ok enough of the chit chat, let’s talk products!
Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil
We all know Kiehl’s enormously popular Midnight Recovery Concentrate. Following this baby, Kiehl’s came out with a new oil cleanser using the same ingredients as the concentrate. This light cleansing essential oil will turn into a cleansing milk when in contact with water. It is a soft, yet very effective product to clear your skin from makeup and impurities. The Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleanser is enriched with an aromatic mixture of pure essential oils. It’s rich in Omega 6, lavender oil and evening primrose oil making sure your skin will recover overnight. The product is non-comedogenic, made without soap, sulfate and mineral oils.
The product smells like the French Provence. I mean, it’s like applying summer on your skin. It’s super calming and perfect for night time!
Use the cleanser every evening to get rid of makeup, impurities and more. Massage three pumps into your skin, even the eyes and add in water afterward to get that ‘milky’ cleanser. Massage again and cleanse with warm water. Don’t worry if you have an oily or acne prone skin. The oil in the product will pull out the skin’s oils making it better to work with impurities.
Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque
This gel like, lightweight mask is made with handpicked Calendula flower petals and Aloe Vera. Once on the skin it soothes and refreshes for a hydrated and calm skin. The Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque smells very fresh, orange like. After usage your skin feels soft and your complexion is less dull.
I use this product once of twice a week for 3-5 minutes. I first cleanse my skin with the oil cleanser above and finish with my Calendula toner. Apply a good amount on the skin, you definitely need to see you’ve got something on your face. It feels super fresh. Massage the product into the skin while rinsing with warm water. Dab the skin dry with a soft cloth.
Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream
Enriched with one of the best honey’s in the world, New Zealand’s Manuka honey, it’s one of Kiehl’s new showpieces. This cream will strengthen the skin barrier and works against fine lines. Together with the revitalizing Korean red ginseng root your skin will be stimulated into cell renewal.
To me the scent is less interesting as the rest. I’ve never liked the smell of honey so this is not my product scent wise BUT the more product wise. I apply it every night after my usual night time routine with the Midnight oil cleanser, Calendula toner & Midnight concentrate. You can use it in the morning as well but I like to keep this one as my night cream. It’s quite sticky so I actually apply it like I apply the midnight concentrate. Rubbing the product between my fingers, use most of the product on the cheeks by pushing it into the skin and using the rest on my forehead & chin. Massage the rest into the face.
After two weeks
Drum roll please!! Haha, just kidding. I tried out these three new Kiehl products for two weeks straight. I used it combination with the Calendula toner & Midnight Recovery Concentrate. Giving my skin the time to adjust, I must say that my complexion looks way better. Lately I’m dealing with a lot of pimples on my chin, lip area, around the nose, and between the brows. Since I started using these three products I did some improvement. I’m not saying I had clear skin right away but I can definitely NOT complain. The pimples are clearly less than before, my skin glows more and it feels a lot better than before.
Thanks Kiehl’s for this amazing event. I had a lot of fun spending time with all of you and discovering those newbies in your range of endless perfect products.
